You are commanded (not our word!) to attend the marriage His Royal Highness William with Miss Catherine Middleton with us!
You should most definitely wear your pajamas (and a tiara, fascinator or hat) as you play with these Paper Dolls ($10, Creative Kidstuff). If you get bored during commercials (as if!), you can play this satisfying dress-up game on InStyle.com. Even though it's totally unrealistic since we all know that Kate will need to wear sleeves. Love these local designers creations for the future princess. If only one of the Minnesotans were secretly British -- that would be a fashion fairytale.
Snack and sip
Since we won't want to tear ourselves away from the TV to whip up a batch of our famous scones, make sure you stock up at Bars Bakery. Don't forget the looseleaf Earl Grey and English Breakfast teas from Tea Garden.
We suspect there will be a line at the door when Brit's Pub opens at 5 a.m. on Friday. A special blend of Crispin? A Kate and Wills look-alike contest? Bangers for breakfast? This is serious.
If you're not too sleepy, swing by Pumpz & Company on Friday for tea and cake (10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Galleria) and shop Mulberry handbags. Yes, they're British!
And, we seriously want everything on local photog Liz Banfield's British Crush blog.
Follow us and the #MNKateWill feed starting, oh, at 3 a.m.ish on Friday. We'll be seeing you when the countdown clock strikes zero at which time we will be glad to be on this side of the Atlantic and immune from the Queen's cruel handbag signals. Cheerio, PopFizz Princes and Princesses!
